Arrowsmith Program

The Arrowsmith Program has been used for 40 years to identify and strengthen areas of cognitive weakness that affect learning. The Arrowsmith Program exercises target the root cause of a learning disability, rather than managing its symptoms. When addressing a learning disability or cognitive deficit, schools or rehabilitation centers offer accommodations or work arounds. Unfortunately these solutions may actually prevent the brain from maximizing its potential.

The Arrowsmith Program offers a series of intensive and graduated cognitive exercises that are designed to strengthen the causes of specific learning difficulties. Each participant in the Arrowsmith Program has his or her specific schedule of exercises to be completed each day. These exercises differ for each participant depending upon that participant’s diagnostic assessment results. Exercises include written, visual, auditory and computer exercises.

At Train Your Brain RVA our goal is for everyone with learning challenges to become effective, confident and self-directed learners.  Classes are taught in person or via the internet and offer small group and/or 1:1 attention when appropriate.
